What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

"I know. GET OUT."


"And what are you supposed to be?"

  "I'm a clown shark!"

 "No, I traumatize small children."



"Ok, Mr. Crab, we give up; what are you doing?"

"I call this, 'Blue Seal.' Sha-POW!"

[everyone] "SHUT UP, LARRY."


"I can't believe we have to pick one these crazy fish for the winner, Otto."

"Tell me about it. What are we going to do?"

"Hello, boys."



"The new Oceanic Idol, everybody!!"


Thanks to Nikki D., Melanie N., Tracie T., Leanne M., Amanda W., Laura B., Sarah O., & Kaitlin K. for teaching us that eggs can have tentacles. Really, I expected that lesson to come from Japan. {HEYO.}


A Fairy Tale Wrecking

Once upon a crime... 

 Belle went on a killing spree,

while Cinderella stayed home and pondered the meaning of thumbs.





Thanks to Suzanne S. for making me laugh like a fool for far longer than is socially acceptable.
